My TEASER TUESDAY for August 27

teaser tuesdayTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

From BURIED LEADS by LynDee Walker, an ARC I was just reading:

“My favorite Prof in college had a saying in a frame over his desk: every journalist gets to lead a story with a quote twice in their career. Once when they’re too green to know any better, and again when the Pope says ‘fuck’.”

A student is spending a day in the newsroom. He writes a story that is very good except it starts with a quote. The reporters explain you never do that and one made the comment above. And then said she always imagined it was the Pope was stuck on level 15 of Angry Birds that had him so frustrated.

It’s a really great book. Doesn’t come out until October but you can pre-order it or when LynDee visits my blog in October, you can visit and enter for a chance to win it.
